    Firefighters responded to a 3-alarm blaze in Worcester, Massachusetts early Wednesday morning.

    Crews responded to the scene at 8 Boylston St. around 5 a.m. NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter was over the scene, where numerous engines could be seen surrounding the building. 

    Based on signage on the exterior of the building, it appears to house a nail salon and a tattoo parlor.

    Fire Chief Michael Lavoie said the fire started in a commercial building and spread up into a single-family home that is surrounded by the commercial structure.

    "When crews got here, they found heavy fire," he said. "No injuries. Luckily, no slips and falls. They did a great job."

    Lavoie said investigators don't know yet where the fire started.

    He said seven residents were displaced as a result of the fire. No one was injured and the cause remains under investigation.

    Carmelo Colon, who lives in the building, said he heard the fire alarms go off and got dressed and got out of the building.

    "The fire trucks were here real quick," he said. "They did a great job, got the fire under control."

    "It's cold out here," he added. "I don't know what to do now. I have no place to go."
